2 Boston Police Officers Attacked By Teenagers

December 30, 2014  | 

Two Boston police officers were hospitalized yesterday after they were cornered in a stairwell by at least six teens who "kicked, punched, and choked" them as the officers tried to arrest a family member on a warrant in Roxbury, reports the Boston Herald.

At 11 a.m. yesterday, a male and female police officer went to Wayne Street to serve a probation warrant on Woobenson Morissett, 19, of Dorchester for defaulting on court appearances, police said. Officers said Morissett's family told them he wasn't home but they were allowed to search the apartment.

The officers found Morissett in the apartment building's rear stairwell, where police said Morissett attacked them, and while police were struggling with him several of his relatives then poured out of two apartments and joined in the fight.

Officers used pepper spray to defend themselves and several officers raced to the scene to assist.

The two officers were taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

All seven suspects will be charged with assault and battery on a police officer resulting in injury, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and resisting arrest.

Now, it should be noted that all the major media outlets have chosen to censor the race of the teen attackers. However, the folks over at Top Conservative News note that “the attack occurred in one of the blackest parts of Boston.” Furthermore, “the two adult suspects do not have Spanish names, and the suspects are said to be all related.”

I agree this Black on cop attack is not worthy of reporting for the Lib News Media. I tend to say it may not be news worthy a but since these types of attacks by Black teens and hong men on Police Officers is very, very common as is their being suspects in such a large number of violent crime in all categories. People have no idea how disproportionate the number safe for the amount of violent crime they commit in relation to their percentage of the population. Its sad for whatever reason this is, but the facts are the facts. I doubt that thing will change anytime soon. News Media are the animal that they are as are thugs and the lawless.
